IndyCar Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

Post by bigdc48 on Tue Mar 24, 2015 9:49 am

After months of waiting, the Verizon IndyCar Series season kicks off 2015 at the streets of St. Petersburg in Florida.

Will Power begins his title defense while last year's runner-up Helio Castroneves looks for his first elusive championship.

Gabby Chaves and Stefano Coletti highlight the rookie class this season.

Man it's been too long since I've seen an IndyCar race. Hopefully this race will be the saving grace for what's already been a lackluster run of races in major Motorsports this year.

Holy Moly the 19 is slow. Dracone is 3.5 seconds behind Power, and 2.1 behind the next slowest car O_o

I think the latter pretty much might explain this season.

Don't know if this is the right thread to post this, but Pro Mazda driver Michael Johnson has been injured in a practice crash at St. Pete. He was put in intensive care due to fractures in the hips and pelvis.

He's also a paraplegic too, so I don't think the injury will stop him one bit. I hope he recovers well.

I told you so.

Anyway this Chevy dominance is worrying. Hope it doesn't stay like this for long.

Penske fill out front row. Nice to see Bourdais up at the top, but disappointed where Luca finished. Dracone won't start last due to his q-group being faster, despite being 2.3 seconds slower than the next runner.

I originally thought Rahal caused the original damage to Kimball's car - naturally, he then punted him off as if to make my outrage justified.

What a goddamn moron.

Pretty solid race today. There were some fails, but that's too be expected from the first race of the year.

Penalties for Chevy.

They lost 220 manufacture points, they are now behind Honda by 192.

I forgot to give my opinions on this race. Whoops. Laughing

Pretty solid start to the season. And a great battle by Juan Pablo Montoya and Will Power at the end. Once again, St. Pete does not disappoint.

The GP of St. Petersburg gets a solid 6.5/10.
